Question posted in the General Law category relating to Western Cape

Iam a nurse at clicks. I was on leave 2nd week of February and I received a whatsp from my colligue that one of the store manager and the pharmacy assistant where in my room searching. According to the colligue they found items in my room. I came back from the leave the 23rd of Feb and nothing was said to me. And in the room I'm not the only one who works there. Until today the area manager comes to shout me today not even talking to me professionally she asks me where I was yesterday and there's an investigation going on and everyone the guy is here I'm not there. I don't know anything about investigation going because no one notified me of anything except for my colligue who was just telling me because something happened and she was shocked as she was never asked anything till today. I just want to know how do I handle this

Hi there,

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment, even if it is R150 or R200.

Until the employer approaches you and explains the situation to you, there is not a lot that you can do. The employer can investigate whatever it wants. If there is evidence that you took the stuff, then they might call you to a hearing. If there is no evidence, then that should be the end of it all.
